TAIWAN: Taiwan International Machine Tool Show (TMTS), a machine tools and accessory procurement platform organised jointly by Taichung City Government and the Taiwan Machine Tool and Accessory Builders’ Association (TMBA) has been launched!
Boosting wp to 720 exhibitors in a five-day exhibition, TMTS is estimated to have attracted more than 80,000 visitors from Taiwan and abroad. The exhibitors will endeavor to secure orders amounted to as much as NT$10 billion.
Mr. Jui-Hsiung Yan, chairman of the Taiwan Machine Tool and Accessory Builders’ Association (TMBA), said that the theme of the 2018 TMTS is “Manufacture Linking • Activate the Future”. TMTS called on the stars of the machine tool and accessory industry to showcase Taiwan’s complete and diversified industrial supply chain. Major manufacturers such as TONGTAI, YCM, Victor Taichung, GOODWAY, AWEA, and HARTFORD, etc. will take a lead to demonstrate Taiwan’s most competitive machine models and main products, such as vertical and horizontal machining centres, lathes, milling machines or turning and milling centers, etc. Moreover, products that emphasise smart manufacturing elements such as COSEN’s smart Bandsaw CPC System for Industry 4.0, FEMCO’s Wheel Machining Automation, the intelligent lathes of SUNFIRM, and the Intelligent Linear Motor Drive Wire Cut EDM of CHMER are also expected to be highlighted in this exhibition.
In addition to the momentum of the whole machine factories, component manufacturers that have had a place in the global machine tool supply chain are equally invigorated. For example, besides the well-known linear guideway components, this year HIWIN will also present its successfully mass-produced Harmonic Drive. POSA is also geared to show visitors a complete spindle product line. TANSHING will display the 5-Axis CNC Rotary Table which is in line with intelligent automation requirements. HABOR will showcase energy-saving and environmentally-friendly industrial coolers. Products from other partners including index tables, tool magazines, cutting tools, toolholding & workholding devices, tools, measuring instruments will also be on display. It is also believed that TMTS can meet the needs of visitors and offer high-quality and customised services.
Besides diverse and innovative exhibition items, the Taiwan Machine Tool and Accessory Builders’ Association (TMBA) will organise purchasing conferences during the 2018 TMTS to help Taiwanese companies expand their overseas markets and seek business opportunities with foreign companies. TMBA will invite international buyers and exhibitors to conduct one-on-one negotiations, effectively matching international buyers and exhibitors, and thus making TMTS the best platform for the industry and customers to communicate with each other and grasp the market pulse.
Furthermore, during the show, not only enthusiastic exhibitors are fully committed to providing buyers from all over the world with complete and diversified manufacturing services, but TMBA will also cooperate with machine tool manufacturers to extend business opportunities from the exhibition venue to the factory. From November 7 to November 9, there will be eleven factories open to foreign buyers to visit, allowing customers to break the limit of the exhibition venue, and witness the production status and working attitude of Taiwan’s machine tools and accessory manufacturers. Customers will also be able to see the most authentic aspect of Taiwan’s machine tool industry.
